Chrome credential theft bug - patch coming

Unread postby Sludge3000 » May 17th, 2017, 4:17 am

Google's Chrome team is working to fix a credential theft bug that strikes if the browser is running on Microsoft Windows.

The bug is exploited if a user is tricked into clicking a link that downloads a Windows .scf file (the ancient Shell Command File format, a shortcut to Show Desktop since Windows 98).
